For Fathers

Is abortion just a woman's issue, or does the father also have an emotional response?

FATHERS

Abortion, the death of a baby in the womb brought about by the intention of the parent(s) is not just a woman's issue, regardless of the widespread belief that there is no place for the father's opinion. There have been over 8 million abortions since the introduction in Great Britain of the abortion act in 1967, and the effect on the bereaved fathers has been underestimated and largely ignored.

FORTY YEARS LATER

Forty years later, millions of men have been affected by abortion. Many knowingly participated through a wide range of approaches, from passivity to coercion. The men who make up these grievous numbers are boyfriends and husbands. In other cases, the pregnant girl or woman was faced by pressure from her own father, relatives or friends to “get rid of the problem.” Some men abandoned the mother and crisis pregnancy situation altogether. Others responded with indifference, leaving the mother confused and feeling helpless. Others who were uninformed or deceived came to learn about the abortion after the fact. Still other men fought unsuccessfully for the lives of their unborn children” - AFA Journal.
